Day 9 - Drawing September
9 September 2014, 21:19

This month I am taking part in a month of drawing, posting images every day. Today I wanted to focus on a natural history study. I have produced sketches of a piece of Lucerne (pencil and ink) - a beautiful purple wildflower that grows all over the mountainside behind my home.

I have also done two studies of a buff-tailed bumblebee (pencil). I found this incredible insect outside the back door, but unfortunately it was too late to revive it with sugar water. So I took it indoors and tried to capture it for today's sketch. I used a magnifying lens to help to visualise the detail.
